Dipper [Cinclus cinclus]

Found along fast-flowing rivers, mainly in upland areas but also on lowland rivers in SW England. Look for tell-tale droppings on stones in the river.

  3. Superb shot of the Dipper and it's inner eyelid.
    I really will have o make an effort as there are plenty about up here. I didn't know folk ringed Dippers. They move fast but don't move far.

    1. The camouflage is why it is hard to see Karen.
